Need I say more? They make great burgers and you can request local, grass fed beef for a small additional fee. Their milkshakes are amazing. It's a bit pricier than the typical fast food restaurant but it's worth it for the quality.

We occasionally stop here for a burger when we are in town. They have kind of a college atmosphere and are usually busy.

Wonderful frenchfries! Delicious sandwiches. Friendly servers and reasonable prices. A good choice when you want your food fast but don't want your standard fast food.

Nothing special here. It's pretty much a duplicate of Five Guys, which happens to be a few yards away and pricey, too. Kid's meal had two ridiculously tiny chicken tenders. No burger on the kids' menu either, so you're stuck paying $8 for the regular size for your kids. The "come back" sauce was good. Fries were fresh, but exactly... More

The food is delicious and all the workers serve with a smile! Many don't know that if you know what you want, you don't have to fill out the form. Just go to the register and order.

Love this place. Cannot count how many times I have been. Burgers, fries, chicken, and shakes are all great. The sauce is what keeps me coming back. It is the best. Service is lightning fast too. Almost always crowded so be prepared for a little wait.
